Karina Rider, postdoctoral researcher with the Social Media Collective at Microsoft Research New England, will present "Building Things that Matter: The Ambivalence of Tech for Good Initiatives."
Karina Rider is a postdoctoral researcher with the Social Media Collective at Microsoft Research New England. As an ethnographer of tech critique, they research how civic organizations attempt to design digital technologies and economies for better futures, as well as what happens when such efforts fail. They are currently researching how civic and political groups are contesting Google’s proposed mega-campus in downtown San José, California.
